Sgt. Ryan Sharp, 21, from Brookfield, Wi. (C), shows the rest of 1st Platoon, Bravo Co., 1-17 Infantry, his share of videos and pictures of the unit before turning in for the night at their small ouptost in Kandahar, November 21, 2009. The photos range from their training almost 3 years ago in Ft. Lewis, to their current deployment in the Arghandab valley in Afghanistan.
